There are many different mental health problems. Some of them have similar symptoms, so you may experience the symptoms of more than one mental health problem, or be given several diagnoses at once.

Or you might not have any particular diagnosis, but still be finding things very difficult. Everyone’s experience is different and can change at different times.

Understanding why…

If you are really worried about yourself or someone else, you may be wondering why we have different triggers and emotional responses to the challenges that we face.

Here are some examples of factors that could have an impact on mental health:

  • childhood abuse, trauma, or neglect
  • social isolation or loneliness
  • experiencing discrimination and stigma
  • social disadvantage, poverty or debt
  • bereavement (losing someone close to you)
  • severe or long-term stress
  • having a long-term physical health condition
  • unemployment or losing your job
  • homelessness or poor housing
  • being a long term carer for someone
  • drug and alcohol misuse
  • domestic violence, bullying or other abuse as an adult
  • significant trauma as an adult, such as military combat, being involved in a serious incident, or being the victim of a violent crime
  • physical health problems– for example, a head injury or a neurological condition such as epilepsy can have an impact on your behaviour and mood
